    1st i would like to know if i can have a search that i can use category filter.

    2nd also when i search for a word i want to have as results every spot on a post that has that word as new result. eg when i have the word "test" in a post 10 times i want to have 10 results highlighting the different "test" words (one each time)

    3rd based on no2 i would like to have a read more link at every result that will get me to the part of my post that highlighted word is and not in the beginning of the post.

    atsouf,

    1 and 2 are on the charts for development

    I haven't thought about 3, and I am not sure how easy it is to implement this, because jumping would require some form of an ID tag to the word which wouldn't be the default case. I'll need to do a bit of research to see if I can rewrite the page on the fly.

    for point number 2 ,
    try to search in http://cloudbackuponline.biz/ , is that what you want to appear? it is using better-search plugin by Ajay - customized. Minimal two words in sequence search, because i personally blocked one word only search terms.

    for point number 3,
    you should know the exact char number before the highlighted keyword in the excerpt, and then link that highlighted keyword to jump to specifif part it linked to, need url with javascript and # anchor. The closest example is when you try to edit wp theme/plugin in wp admin backend.

    I can implement this in my version of the plugin and share it with users.
